Activities, crafts and songs can be a great way to solidify the sun safety messaging among program participants. Perhaps summer staff will commit to do one activity each week as part of their program plans.
These are activities that can be used to reinforce the message of sun safety with participants. Some of these are great to include in rainy day program plans.
• Activity Package
• Sun Safety Fortune Teller – Canadian Cancer Society
• Reward good sun behvaviour by presenting participants with a Sun Safety Superstar Award!
Songs can be a great way to make sun safety fun! Your staff may choose to teach one of these songs to their participants and sing it during the time of sunscreen application.
• Slip, Slop, Slap, Seek and Side (SunSmart Victoria)
• Sun Safety for Kids – Take 2
